BoxyCharm Subscription Box Review – October 2017
BoxyCharm is a full-size beauty and makeup subscription box. They always provide a great value compared the cost of the box. (If you are a makeup addict – I HIGHLY recommend this box!)
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription Box: BoxyCharm
The Cost: $21 a month
The Products: 5-6 beauty items that will include nail care, skin care, makeup, haircare, fragrance and more. (At least 4 of those items will be full-sized).
Ships to: US and Canada
Each box comes with a card detailing the items included.
Now, time for the items!
Dr. Brandt PoreDermabrasion – Value $58
(All subscribers will receive this item. Good to know for swapping – this item has an inner foil seal.)
Dr. Brandt makes amazing exfoliators, and I’m always happy to see this brand in subscription boxes. Unlike the Age Defying exfoliator, this scrub has a very subtle mint scent, and the scrubbing particles are a little finer.
I can’t get over how smooth this exfoliator makes my skin feel – if you haven’t sampled this yet, you are in for a treat!
Tarte Tarteist™ Quick Dry Matte Lip Paint in Delish – Value $20
(All subscribers will receive this item in one of eight shades.)
A quick drying matte lipstick from tarte? Yes, please!
And bonus, I LOVE this color! The formula is really lightweight, but it dries quickly, and it is mostly smudge proof immediately. And the pigment is fab, too.

Jonteblu Lip Liner Pencil in Brown Sugar – Value $5
(This is a possible variant item. Not all subscribers may receive this. Colors will vary.)
When I first saw this color in the spoilers I assumed it would be way too dark for me, but it actually goes on in a shade that works with the tarte lip paint!
It looks brown in the pencil, but it really looks like more of a dark berry shade when I tried it on. Here it is swatched beneath the lip paint:
And that third item swatched is this highlighter:
All subscribers will either receive this pressed powder Becca highlighter or the Becca Liquid Highlighter Prosecco Pop.)
The Prosecco Pop color is a warm gold highlighter and it is packed with shimmer and pigment! This is one of those highlighters that will last me FOREVER! You just need one quick swipe of a brush to get all the highlight you need. And it blends out easily, too.
(If you got the liquid highlighter in your box, please let us know how the formula holds up!)
NcLA X Boxycharm Nailed It Tool Kit – Value $18
(This is a variant item. Not all subscribers will receive this. Check out our Boxycharm October spoilers to see other options you may receive.)
I received this kit in red last year thanks to POPSUGAR and it has really come in handy, so I have no problem having an extra one!
And I appreciate that this case zips completely closed – no need to worry about anything slipping out in your purse. And these tools are good quality, too.
Verdict: This box has a value of about $139! As always, the value for Boxycharm is amazing! And every item ended up being a hit for me, too! (It was weird not having a full arm of swatches, though – I’m used to a palette in almost every box!)
I think Boxycharm is a perfect subscription for people who love makeup. You’re going to get a lot of palettes, highlighters, etc., so it’s great if you want to build your collection and try all the things! (If you only need one highlighter/palette in your makeup arsenal, this might not be the best box for you.)
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Possibly. Boxycharm is in waitlist mode, so I recommend signing up ASAP. They’ll email you when your first box ships, so you’ll know which box you’ll be getting as your first month.
